Carrot Cake [light/Butterless]/Carrot Cake Recipe/How to make Carrot Cake with step by step photos

Today I am going to share a very addictive and tempting Carrot Cake not just that, this cake is butter less. I know this month most of you will be baking lots of cakes as X’mas is fast approaching. So, I wanted to share a healthy version of carrot cake which you can try in your home. I have used chopped almonds to bake this cake, since I had them handy in my pantry and they did taste great. You can as well use walnuts which are always best paired with carrots in baking carrot cakes.

Preheat the oven to 180 C. Grease two 8 inch cake pan with butter. Line the pans with parchment paper as well. Chop the nuts and keep them ready.

In a bowl mix all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon powder, nutmeg powder and sift it.

In another bowl mix oil and sugar really well until well combined.

Add yogurt and beat really well.

Now add vanilla essence, eggs one at a time and beat really well.

Add flour mixture, chopped nuts, raisins and mix with spatula.

Now add the grated carrots and mix all of them together, do not over mix.

Pour the cake mixture to the baking pans.

Bake it in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until the toothpick inserted comes out clear. Let the pan cool for 10 minutes.

Run a knife around the edges of the pan and invert the cakes onto a wire rack or plate and let it cool completely. Then place the cake bottom side up and remove the parchment paper.

Super delicious and healthy Carrot Cake is ready to be enjoyed. Enjoy the cake by applying some frosting or just like that.
